Everton begin the new season against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday evening.

Everton enjoyed a productive end to the summer transfer window, bringing five of their six new recruits within the final nine days.

But Toffees fans will have to wait to see the bulk of those in action, with neither Kurt Zouma, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina nor Bernard available to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, according to Marco Silva.

 

Everton's starting eleven at Molineux could therefore look much like it did during last week's final pre-season friendly with Valencia at Goodison Park, with Richarlison and Lucas Digne in line for competitive their debuts.

Of those, Richarlison is perhaps the most likely to start, although Silva must decide between the pace of Digne and experience of Leighton Baines as to who plays left-back, while Jordan Pickford should replace Maarten Stekelenburg in goal.
